It is not necessary for individuals to completely cut coffee out of their daily routine, even when they are stressed. However, individuals should be more aware of how much coffee they are drinking throughout the day. This is especially important when they are stressed, since this often means that they will drink more. The caffeine in coffee is a significant issue. Most individuals know that caffeine is a stimulant. This means that it increases stress levels instead of helping relax the body. Additionally, it triggers a response in the central nervous system, resulting in an increased heart rate, higher blood pressure, and higher anxiety. 

Drinking too much coffee throughout the day will also affect an individual's ability to sleep in the evening. Even if individuals do not have a problem falling asleep, the caffeine in their system may keep them from sleeping soundly, or it can cause them to wake up in the night. Ideally, individuals should only consume coffee in the morning. However, they should at least stop drinking it at least six hours before going to bed.
